Harry Potter Spin-off "Fantastic Beasts and Where to find Them" to be shot in London

Just the idea that there will be a series about the magical world of Harry Potter is already one of the most exciting news ever. It was announced that the show "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" will be shot in London even though the show will be based in New York. It is kind of a given since the original movie was shot in Warner Bros's Leavesden studios.

The show is going to be taking place 70 years before the Harry Potter's story following a young wizard Newt Scamander and his fictitious adventures around the world looking for various magical species and documenting them. Although it is unclear who we are expected to see there but hopefully familiar characters such as Albus Dumbledore who would have been in his 30s at the time the book was written will be there.

Even though this show is set to be released in November, 2016, it has still yet to find a director for the show. Alfonso Cuaron was rumored to direct the show but the director shot down the rumors. it was also stated that the show will be the first of a trilogy although i am not sure if it will be a continuation of the book or it will be part of the 2 other additional books written by J.K Rowling "Quidditch through the ages" and "A tale of Beedle the Bard".

Who would you suggest to direct the show and what would you like to see in it?
